INDONESIA'S health ministry said it had formed a team of specialists on the president's orders to treat a villager dubbed the "Tree Man" because his body is covered in bark-like warts.

Dede, who is known by one name and whose growths on his hands are so long they cover them in long, root-like tendrils, featured in a television documentary this month.
We have formed a team of 18 specialists to handle Dede's case," she said.

They wanted to work with Anthony Gaspari, the US doctor brought in to examine him for the Discovery Channel documentary
I sure hope they can help this man, that has to be rough.
